Brown Brothers Explorer Chenin Blanc

Brown Brothers Explorer Chenin Blanc

Ref: A116515

This wine has a vibrant clarity in the glass. The nose displays prominent tropical fruits with a hint of ripe pears. The wine is mouth filling with just a hint of sweetness, with excellent fruit weight including hints of tropical fruits and melon flavours. It has a nice zing and a crisp, clean acidic finish and is best enjoyed within two years of vintage. The Brown family was one of the first to foster this variety in Australia, enjoying its mouth filling fruit flavours and fresh acidity, and the fullness of flavour that a touch of residual sugar can bring.

The dynamic, yet traditionally rooted family company of Brown Brothers, has been supplying us with premium Victorian varietals since the beginning of the 1980’s. John Brown (snr.) passed away and sadly his wife Patricia died in 2004 but their sons will continue with the tradition of being Australia’s leading varietal specialist, with some 35 different premium varietal wines being regularly or experimentally produced. This exceptional range of wines comes from their own Milawa, Mystic Park, Banksdale and Whitlands vineyards and they also operate an unusual ‘Bonus Contract Scheme’ with numerous growers in the King Valley, where they pay high prices for grapes on the understanding that each grower achieves the highest level of quality possible.

Jim Budd "another good vintage from this far flung part of the Loire".
Bright raspberry flavours on the palate with an underlying complexity makes this an outstanding wine
